double.com. >>> tuesday president obama lays out his priorities for his new term. tackling gun violence is expected to be front and center. consider this, just last week a 28-year-old woman walked up to a charleston south carolina school with a gun. according to the new york times she tried to shoot two faculty members. the only thing that stopped her, she failed to unlock the gun. here's what makes you really scratch your head about this, she had a history of mental illness. alice had been charged in 2005 with threatening to assassinate president george w. bush and she still cleared a background check to buy the gun. tom dietz is a former de kalb county police officer, you're the owner of sharpshooters usa, and a training facility. how did she manage to legally purchase a weapon? >> first issue was, when she went to the store, she had to complete a federal form called the 4473. when you complete that form, the seller of the firearms retailer looks at the identification. runs down through the questions. to make sure they're answered appropriately. and then calls the fbi, the operations center to lo

to the forced spending cuts to take effect in eight days. president obama made some talk radio appearances. >> whether or not we can move republicans at this point to do the right thing is what we're still trying to gauge. >> now, he's called the cuts severe and brutal. house speaker john boehner, guess what, completely agrees with that. he's called them deep and dangerous, but they're not doing anything about it. here's the thing about the cuts. they're going to hurt some people that nobody wants to hurt. people already in pain, more than 4 million homebound and disabled seniors may have to go without dinner this year because of cuts to meals on wheels programs in the forced cuts. 70,000 children from lower income families will not be able to enroll in preschools and day care centers because of the forced spending cuts. the owners of about 10,000 homes and small businesses destroyed by hurricane sandy won't get the money needed for repair and recovery. now, there are all kinds of things in the forced cuts, some of which you may agree with, but some of which all of us would find offensive.
